The Neuro-Endo-Immune (NEI) Brain-Body Connection
Neuroendoimmunology is an emerging field of functional medical science that sets to understand the interconnectedness of the nervous, endocrine and immune systems. Progressive research in this field suggest each of these three systems function as a larger whole, termed the “NEI SuperSystem™”. Within this super system, the nervous system plays the integral role of modulating the function of the immune and endocrine systems via the hypothalamic-pituitary axis and innervation of endocrine and immunological organs.
This comprehensive neuroadrenal profile assesses 12 individual neurotransmitters and metabolites, a 4x salivary cortisol specimen and DHEA.
This panel is recommended for patients with the following symptoms of nervous system imbalance:
